Irony of Situations

By ~ Lexie Orozco & Lindzey Jacoby

"Oh the Irony"

Irony is misinterpreted all the time. Most people see it as something that was predictable, or something they saw coming, but it is actually the exact opposite. Irony is when something something happens that doesn't go along with the status quo or isn't what we would identify as 'normal'. This specific irony (situational irony) is when something happens that is not expected of someone or something; or the exact opposite of what is thought to occur.
